FYI: In case you're interested.. :)


Dear High School Campus Partners, 


We hope this message finds you well. 


The Fiat Lux Scholarship interviews are coming up on April 5-8, 2017. Students from your high school may be eligible for this prestigious scholarship. However, we are working with a very quick timeline in which your student will receive their admissions decision on Thursday, March 30 and sign up to interview for the Fiat Lux Scholarship for the following week. 


We write to you in hopes that you can help us reach your students who have applied to UC Berkeley and urge them to check on their portal for a decision about admissions on Thursday, March 30. In their admissions decision letter, if admitted and if they have financial need, they would be invited to sign up for a Fiat Lux Scholarship interview. 


We will be conducting a phone bank on Friday, March 31 to make sure all eligible candidates have read the invitation and sign up. We have a limited number of spots for the interviews so please let your students know to sign up as soon as possible. 

If you have any questions, feel free to reach us at


Best Regards,

Dear High School Campus Partners,


The Financial Aid and Scholarship team at UC Berkeley hopes that you are having a successful fall semester. As your offices have been preparing your excellent students to apply to universities all around the country, we want to encourage that your students apply to UC Berkeley. UC Berkeley is a wonderful research institution with amazing students, faculty, and staff. We genuinely want students from our partner high schools to apply and attend UC Berkeley.


To assist students with affording the cost of college, we created a new scholarship program. The new Fiat Lux Scholarship program has combined the Cal Opportunity scholarship and the Incentive Awards Program. The new program will maintain the best programmatic elements from both programs. The Fiat Lux scholarship will help the students financially and help them to be successful at UC Berkeley. We have attached a one page summary of the new Fiat Lux scholarship with more details about the program.


Please note that there is no application needed for the Fiat Lux Scholarship. Students will be considered once they are admitted to the university. Our office will review their financial aid package to determine their need and they will be invited to interview for the scholarship in April. The interviews will take place on the UC Berkeley campus.


The Fiat Lux Scholarship is a great opportunity for your students. All students should have the ability to attend the school of their choice without having to worry about the cost the education. This scholarship will enable students to pay for school as well as equip them with a supportive community to help them be successful at the UC Berkeley.


Please encourage your students to apply to UC Berkeley. We hope to see them in April, interviewing for the Fiat Lux Scholarship. We are here to assist you as well, so please feel free to contact us about any questions you may have about the new Fiat Lux scholarship.




Yesenia and Tamisha
